I had so much fun with the Tea for the Soul set:




First up is the "Fill Your Cup" card:


I printed the main images on Canson Watercolor 90 lb  Cold Press paper.  This works beautifully with our laser printer, doesn't get jammed.  I used my Zig Clean Color Markers with that beautiful Tea cup image.  


I generally feed my digitally printed images through my Scan 'n Cut but this time I fussy cut both.  Sometimes I find it therapeutic to hand cut.


I used a coffee ring stencil in the background, that has been inked up with Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide.  

The pattern paper on both cards is a vintage Stampin' Up pad, Moonlight Designer Series.  I love the color palette.

Next up is my shaker card:


I colored this image with the same colors as my first card.  This tea cup is a bit darker.


Can I tell you that this shaker sounds especially glorious with those big iridescent sequins?  Gotta love the sound of a shaker card!


That's it for me, next up is my fav teamie,  Robyn Jordan!

  28. Such pretty cards. I'd love to be able to watercolour digital images but it seems I have been using the wrong watercolour card. Will try and see if I can find/try some lesser weight smooth watercolour card. Thanks for the inspiration!
